Today's workout was another killer. 7 different exercises; squats, chest presses, pull-ups, sit-ups, planks, lunges and finally rowing. Each one a total of 4 minutes - working 20 seconds and resting 10. Sounds like cake, right? Yeah, that's what I thought, too. My arms, especially, are toast. Tomorrow I may try to get in a run after work, but over lunch I'm shopping kids. Time to get the kids' Easter goodies all figured out! Plus, it's just been a really long time since I have been shopping and I'm itching!
So it seems like I may be able to get my tattoo in time for Kruex's death anniversary after all! I'm really excited for this and think it will help me through the day so much better. Over the last year and through the big dates that have come and gone, I have found that I am much better with a plan, and especially treating these times as celebrations instead of days of mourning. So, last night, as I was trying to go to sleep, I decided we are having a party on the 29th. Not sure how the weather will be, but grilling out would be awesome, but nonetheless, my friends and family are definitely necessary to celebrate the day.
I have also been thinking of getting a couple of tattoos since he passed, but so far haven't had any luck getting ahold of the guy I wanted to do them. The first I want to get done is just his footprints and name. Pretty simple, but very important to me. I have been pretty set that this tattoo would be on the back of my neck since I decided on it, but now tonight as soon as I hung up with my brother (who found a new guy that he wants to go to), I can't decided between the back of my neck, or over my heart.
So, the question of the night...where would you get it? I like the idea on the back of my neck, but I hate the fact that I won't be able to easily see it. I also love the idea of having it on my chest (this is not a tattoo that I have any intention of keeping hidden - so it wouldn't be on my boob, but actually more over my heart), but worry about just in case I do end up having another baby, could it/would it stretch? I would hate to have it change at all. Let me have it. I want to hear it all!
